Well it has been a journey to print my first 3D item. Here it is.
Here is a view of printed socket with parts that will actually be use in the final product and compared to my proto-type.
Here is the actual cost break-down on the printing:
Now for the killer: SHIPPING —-
The item was shipped from Oakland, CA to where I live only about 35 miles and went out UPS. The thing weighs less than an oz or two!
Total came to $20.45. At this rate the cost of a 3D printer is well within reach in the near future. With all the things I want to create and print I can keep a 3D printer busy most of every day.
